The College 

OICKERING COLLEGE has been established by the 
Society of Friends for the purpose of educating 
young- people of both sexes, and is conducted under 
the control of a committee of the Canada Yearly Meet- 

The College is located near the Village of Pickering, 
on the main line of the Grand Trunk Railway, twenty- 
two miles east of Toronto, and six miles west of the 
town of Whitby, and thus is easy of access by rail. 
Excellent postal facilities and a long-distance telephone 
in the school also furnish ready means of communica- 
tion with all points. 

The main building, with its one hundred and six feet 
frontage and forty feet depth, faces south and over- 
looks the ten acres of recreation grounds. It contains 
the dining-room, assembly room, class rooms, office 
reception rooms, students' rooms, kitchens, bath rooms 
and lavatories. The two wings attached to the rear 
and ends of the main buildings extend northward with 
a length of forty feet and a width of thirty feet. These 
wings contain the store rooms and steam laundry, the 
Principal's and Matron's rooms, a well equipped physi- 
cal and chemical laboratory, and the students' 
rooms. All apartments are lofty and spacious. The 
Students' rooms are neatly and comfortably furnished, 
and are supplied with single iron beds. The 


buildings are well ventilated, have an abundant supply 
of water, are heated throughout by steam, and lit by 
Acetylene Gas (Siche System). 

To the north of the west wing is the college gym- 
nasium, in brick, sixty feet by forty feet, recently 
erected and equipped at a cost of $2,500. In the rear 
and removed from the main building are also the car- 
penter's shop, cold storage building, cellar, drive sheds 
and other outbuildings. To the rear and east of the 
buildings are the fruit and kitchen gardens, and to the 
south the play grounds and lawns. 

The seclusion of the College, with the quiet of the 
village and country, and the peaceful beauty of the 
surrounding landscape foster studiousness, while the 
absence of temptations peculiar to large towns and 
cities renders the place eminently safe for students re- 
moved from the watchful guardianship of home. 

Aim of the School 

'TpHE College emphasizes the distinctly academic side 
of school work in preparing students for the ex- 
aminations of the Education Department of Ontario 
and for matriculation in the universities and scientific 
schools of the Province. It emphasizes the practical 
side in preparing students for general business and 
commercial careers. And it emphasizes the aesthetic 
side in its fully developed courses in music and art. 
While its success in these phases of school work has 
been marked, in no phase has it been more successful 
than in fulfilling its primary purpose — the development, 
by a thorough training in the essentials of a liberal 
education and by the healthy influences of a well-order- 
ed home life, of cultured and Christian men and women. 


TN recognition of this primary purpose the founders of 
the school adopted co-educatian. They believed — 
and long - experience has abundantly proved the just- 
ness of their belief — that co-education was the proper 
education, because the natural education. Young- 
people possess social as well as intellectual natures 
and these need development and refinement. What 
can be more helpful than their association under careful 
and judicious supervision ? In Pickering College, as 
elsewhere, experience has shown, moreover, that such 
association, in giving additional gracefulness and 
modest self-control to the girls' deportment, and a 
manly courtesy and deference to the boys', is an ex- 
cellent stimulus to scholarship. 

Courses of Study 

*HpHE work of the College embraces several depart- 
ments : Preparatory, Collegiate, Commercial, 
Music, Drawing, Painting. 

/. Preparatory. — In the Preparatory department 
the pupil receives a grounding in elementary work, a 
grounding made more thorough by the constant super- 
vision of the teachers during study hours, and under 
the skilful guidance of the Collegiate as well as the 
Preparatory instructors during recitations. The course 
of study embraces the work as laid down by the 
Minister of Education for the Public Schools of Ontario. 

II. Collegiate. — From the Preparatory the pupil 
passes into the Collegiate Department, whose standard 
of admission is the equivalent of the High School En- 
trance Examination. The Curriculum of the Collegiate 
Department covers the work for the Pass and Honor 


Matriculation Examinations of Toronto University, also 
that prescribed by the Education Department of Ontario 
for the Junior Leaving- Examination. Students not 
wishing to take such examinations are recommended 
to pursue the course for the College Diploma. This 
course embraces the curriculum of Forms I. II., and 
III. in English, History and Mathematics, and any 
three of the following : Latin, Greek, French, German, 
Physics and Chemistry. It is provided that students 
may substitute the equivalent in Music, Painting or 
Drawing for a part of this work. Should the student 
not wish to pursue the course for the College Diploma, 
he may select a special course from the Collegiate and 
Commercial Departments, provided that such a course, 
in character and extent, meets the approval of the 

III. Commercial. — The great industrial and com- 
mercial movements of the age emphasize the needs of a 
business education. Side by side with the Collegiate 
course, and at times including some of its subjects, 
runs the Commercial Course It offers instruction in 
Single and Double Entry Book-keeping, Commercial 
Arithmetic, Commercial Law, Business Forms, Pen- 
manship, Shorthand and Typewriting. 

As technical skill alone will not suffice to make a 
good business man it is desirable that before entering- 
this department the student should possess a good 
English education. 

A student may follow one of the two courses out- 
lined hereafter. A diploma will be awarded on com- 
pletion of either course. 

Students are also prepared for the examination for 
the Commercial Diploma of the Education Department 
of Ontario.

Piano Department 

'HpHIS Department is under the care of Frances S. 
Morris, A. T. CM., a graduate and member of 
the Faculty of the Toronto Conservatory of Music. 
Miss Morris expects to be absent in Germany for the 
year 1905-6, during which time her work will be taken 
by Miss Marie MacKinnon, an able and experienced 

Students are prepared for the various examinations 
of the Toronto Conservatory of Music, and the success 
of such candidates in the past speaks for the excellence 
and thoroughness of the work done. 


Course in Pianoforte Music 

The College Course is designed to extend over a 
period of three years, and is particularly adapted to 
those who wish to prepare for the musical profession 
and to amateurs who desire thorough and systematic 

Candidates for the examination of each year must 
be prepared to play eight pieces selected from the 
syllabus. Not less than six composers shall be repre- 
sented by any pupil presenting himself as a candidate 
for examination. The examiner will attach more 

weightto the interpretation of compositions and to style 
of playing than to the technical difficulty of the com- 
positions chosen. 

Values of notes, rests, fingering, steadiness in 
time, tempo, phrasing, accentuation, varieties of touch, 
proportion of parts, quality of tone, proper use of 
pedals, tempo rubato, scale and arpeggio playing and 
gradation of tone, will receive due consideration. 

A Preparatory Course intended to lead up to the 
Collegiate is, open to all students, whether they have 
previously acquired any knowledge of music or not. 

A diploma will be granted upon the satisfactory 
completion of the Collegiate Course. 

Vocal Department 

The Vocal Department is under the charge of Miss 
Marie Wheler, a popular concert singer, and a teacher of 
the Toronto Conservatory of Music. As in the Piano 
Department, the course is designed to extend over a 
space of three years. Candidates for each of the 
three examinations must be prepared to sing six com- 
positions selected from the syllabus. A diploma will be 
granted upon the satisfactory completion of the course. 


Drawing and Painting 

TN addition to the courses in drawing in the Prepara- 
tory and Collegiate departments, in which students 
are prepared for the diplomas and teachers' certificates 
of the Education Department of Ontario, careful atten- 
tion is given to advanced work in drawing and painting. 
Students in this department receive instruction from 
Florence H. McGillivray, an experienced and successful 

The course includes Drawing in Crayon and Charcoal 
from the Flat, Outline and Shading from Casts or 
Models ; Drawing and Shading from groups of Still 
Life ; Copying Paintings, Fruits, Flowers, Figures or 
Landscapes ; Painting from the Cast, Painting in 
Monocrome, Painting from Still Life ; Time Studies 
from Still Life ; Sketching from Nature, Landscape or 
Figures ; China Painting. This work may also be 
submitted for the special certificates of the Education 

Physical Culture 

All lady students are required to attend the classes 
in Physical Culture, for which no extra charge is made. 
The course will consist of Calisthenic Exercises, 
Freehand Gymnastics, exercises with Dumb-bells, 
Wands, etc. 


Literary Society and Reading Room 

'T A HE Literary Society is sustained by teachers and 
students, and has proved to be one of the most 
useful features of the College. The President is always 
an officer of the school ; all pupils are its members. 
Its Laws and Rules of Order have been framed with 
the greatest care, and with the intent that all belonging 
to the society shall gain such experience in methods of 
transacting business in public meetings as will be most 
useful to them in the actual affairs of life. At each 
meeting debates are held, or essays read, and readings 
and recitations given. These tend to train the students 
in facility and exactness of expression in public assem- 
blies, and to develop a taste for useful and elevating 
literature by the study and thoughtful preparation 

4 'The College Journal," the Society's manuscript 
paper, is read by the editors before the Society at the 
regular meetings. 

The College Reading Room is always managed by 
the Society, and affords to members ample facilities for 
becoming acquainted, not only with current news, but 
also with some of the choicest periodical literature of 
the time. 

Discipline and Conduct 

'HpHE discipline of the College is kind, but it is firmly 
and impartially administered. Good discipline is 
based upon reason, and upon a sense of justice and 
consideration for others, and the good discipline of 
Pickering- College is derived from appeals to these 
qualities, from the unity of interests, and from the 
sympathy and kindliness between teacher and pupil 
that should mark resident life. 

All rules and regulations of the College are the 
products of long experience, and with these rules the 
staff expects — and exacts — an unquestioning compli- 
ance. Severe or even frequent punishments of any 
kind will not be resorted to. When a student's influ- 
ence is harmful, even though he has committed no 
overt act of insubordination, his withdrawal will be 
required ; but when he has been guilty of gross mis- 
conduct or continued violation of the rules of the 
school, he will be suspended, and after investigation 
by the Committee of Management, this suspension will 
become expulsion. 


A S absence from the regular school duties, even for 
a single day, interferes seriously with the work 
of the pupil, no one will be allowed to go home during 
the term — special or urgent cases excepted — or stay 
overnight with friends in the vicinity, except by written 
request from the parent or guardian to the Principal. 
It is earnestly desired that such requests be made as 
rarely as possible. 

Punctual attendance from the first to the closing 
day of each term is of vital importance, not only to the 
student himself, but to the members of the classes with 
which he is connected. Parents are therefore strongly 
urged to see that their children return punctually afte 
the holidays. 


Tj^OR the preservation of health and the physical 
development of the students, outdoor exercise is 
encouraged and cordial support is given to athletic 
sports ; but the idea that these sports should hold a 
first place in school life is not tolerated. 

The college grounds comprise ten acres, and affords 
sufficient room for all outdoor games. An adjacent 
stream gives the boys excellent opportunities for bath- 
ing and swimming in the summer, and the College 
rinks afford pleasant recreation during the winter. 
An Athletic Association has been established by the 
students, and the games —cricket, basketball, football, 
baseball, hockey, tennis, etc., are under its control. 

Every afternoon, weather permitting, the girls 
accompanied by one of the lady teachers, walk out to- 
gether for exercise. In suitable weather, bicycling, 
tennis, croquet, basketball or skating, may take the 
place of the afternoon walk. 

The gymnasium affords ample opportunityfor system- 
atic indoor exercises. 

The Annual Games are held in June, when, through 
the kindness of the friends of the College, useful and 
valuable prizes are offered for competition.

View of Campus 


TNTIMATELY connected with the question of the 
recreation of the students is that of the health of 
the students. The location of the school buildings is 
unusually favorable — high, dry, well drained, removed 
from all other buildings, from swampy or malarial dis- 
tricts, and from all predisposing causes of disease. 
The buildings themselves are large, airy, well venti- 
lated, with an excellent hot and cold water supply, 
baths, lavatories and sewage system. The school life 
is regular. Special attention is given to the time and 
quality of the meals, the hours of study and recrea- 
tion, etc. 

Parents are assured that prompt and efficient atten- 
tion will be given to all cases of illness, and, when 
necessary, isolation will be provided. In serious cases 
immediate notification will be sent to the parents. 

Religious and Moral Instruction 

'THE Principal is a Minister of the Society of Friends. 
All religious meeting's are under his supervision, 
and for them special times are set apart. 

Every day, morning and evening, worship is con- 
ducted. School is opened by prayer and reading of 

On the Sabbath Day those students who are not 
Friends, and whose parents desire it, are allowed to 
attend their own places of worship (if the services are 
held in the daytime) at such hours as will not conflict 
with the College Bible School: all others are expected 
to attend the Friends' Meeting. In Pickering there 
are, besides the Friends, the following places of wor- 
ship: Church of England, Roman Catholic, Presby- 
terian, Methodist and Disciples. 

In addition to the week-day classes in Bible His- 
tory, Bible classes are held on Sabbath afternoons, and 
a meeting for worship in the College in the evening. 

Prayer meetings are held once a week, under the 
auspices of the College Y.P.S.C.E. These meetings 
have, in the past, been a source of great blessing to 
both teachers and students. 

Note. — All students are expected to attend the 
Bible School, the Sabbath Evening Meeting, unless 
excused for good and sufficient reasons by the Principal. 


General Information 

"p\AMAGES to property must be promptly reported 
and paid for. 

The occupants of each room will be held respon- 
sible for all damages in the room. 

The Principal reserves the right to change the occu- 
pants of any room when the good of the School 
demands it. 

Reports of conduct and progress in study are sent 
to parents and guardians monthly. 

Students on coming to the College are requested to 
have all their articles of linen and underclothing plainly 
marked with their names in indelible ink. Neglect of 
this precaution causes losses for which the School 
will not be responsible. 

All rooms are neatly and comfortably furnished. 
Students are, however, expected to provide their own 
towels, toilet soap, napkins and napkin ring. They 
should also be provided with laundry bag, shoe bag, 
house-slippers, rubbers or overshoes, and umbrellas. 

Books, newspapers, etc., brought into the College 
by the pupils, or received by them, are subject to the 
approval of the Principal. 

Drinking wine, beer, or spirituous liquors, the use 
of tobacco in any manner and in any place, profane or 
indecent language, card playing and the use of fire-arms 
are strictly forbidden. No student who persists in any 
of these practices will be allowed to remain in the 

No student will be allowed to go swimming, bath- 
ing, boating or fishing without permission and super-

suspended or expelled, they will forfeit their fees for 
that term. 

Books, stationery, etc., may be procured at the 
College at current rates. 



A PPLICATIONS for admission should be accom- 
panied by satisfactory evidence of good moral 
character, also by such information as may prove
